Boseong Green Tea Festival 2019

The Boseong Green Tea Festival is a hot summer event for locals, though it remains largely unknown to many foreign travelers. The Boseong Tea Plantation, open since 1957, is the only tourist tea plantation in Korea and is well-known for its spectacular teas and breathtaking tea fields that stretch across 5,000,000㎡ of land. The Boseong Green Tea Festival, which takes place every May when the leaves are greenest, hosts a variety of tea events such as a ritual to the Tea God to pray for good harvests, tea leaf-picking, making tea, and tea ceremonies. Here, you can also enjoy tea-inspired dishes such as green tea ice cream and green tea infused bibimbap (비빔밥).
